Being in the interior decor and design industry, I am exposed to all the different styles of interiors and furniture: Colonial, Seaside, Contemporary, Antique, Eclectic, French. I like them all – in the right setting of course!
But my absolute favourite interior style is Industrial Cottage. I love the stark edges and ‘coldness’ of Industrial, and the warmth of Cottage. The off-set of cold and warm, hard and soft, stark and upholstered, makes my blood flow and gets my imagination going.
Using different textiles to add contrast and layers also keeps the space interesting and adds depth.
We recently purchased a Cottage of our own, and I am planning to let my creative juices flow freely in this space.
